Development of a flexible modular based concept of care facilities for a client in the healthcare real estate industry.
Due to changes in regulations guiding elderly care housing and the ageing of population, the next few years will require an increase in appropriate housing and care facilities for Senior Citizens.
This proposal for communal based living offers central shared facilities surrounded by 8 apartments, organized on 2 to 3 stories. The concept was created with universality and expansion in mind by varying the geometry of combined units, so that the preferred living and housing form can be adapted to different sites. The building provides a comfortable living environment that is also optimised within cost and construction restraints.
The proposal is implemented here as a project for three separate buildings surrounding a common garden on a hillside site where the land use plan stipulated social oriented development.
